The holiday itself does not matter to me. My significance, my personal designation of what the holiday is to me does, however, have meaning to me.
And that meaning, for me, is the amazing beauty and completion I feel because of the friends and family I have.
Physically, I am not around many of my friends and most of my family. That being said, I am nothing without them. I am who I am because of my father, brother and mother. I am who I am because of my girl, my friends past and present and my dogs. Physically or no, the people that I love make up the subtle and obtuse lines of my life.
Star Bar would not exist without them, and I am not entirely sure I would want to exist without them. I would be empty.
But I am not empty. I am waking up alone on Christmas day and I am not empty. Because of you. I am lucky.
